Can I stop target designator movement on RWS from changing range


Recommended Posts

Hello. When I'm moving my target designator around in TWS mode, if I move it up to the top of the VSD it moves the range up to the next setting e.g. if it is set to range 40 it automatically moves it up to 80 and if I slew it to the bottom it moves it down again.  Is there a way to have it so the range only changes if I specifically tell it to?  I find it is very easy to get lost when it is changing automatically.

Maybe this video helps you understand why -->

I think you misunderstood his question.  He's talking about the display range change when the cursor bumps the top or bottom of the screen.

Thanks @Cmptohocah that is pretty cool anyway, but @GGTharos is correct that my question is about the display range (I'm new to the game so may not be getting all the terms right at the moment). I was hoping to find a way to e.g. keep it at 40 if that is what I have set it to, rather than have it move to 20 if I scroll the TDC to the bottom or to 80 if I move it to the top.

The IRL control for the TDC is much harder to bump accidentally.  Unfortunately our toy sticks/throttles aren't built with quite the same goals in mind 🙂

Now I've played a bit more I'm not actually finding it such an issue. I think it was down to the panic of not knowing what I was doing and getting lost in all the things to remember, but now some bits of the game are becoming 2nd nature I'm not getting lost in the TDC anymore.
